A Review of Into the White

In a recent review in The Sixteenth Century Journal, Andrew Wadoski discusses Into the White: The Renaissance Arctic and the end of the Image by Christopher Heuer. Click here to learn more about the book. Click the button to the left to read the full review. An excerpt appears below:

“Christopher Heuer’s Into the White is a pleasure both to behold and to read. The book thus offers a fascinating counterpoint to its very discussion of the Renaissance conception of the Arctic not simply as an anti-aesthetic site, but as a place utterly devoid of anything one could align either with or against normative notions of beauty. The Renaissance Arctic, as Heuer argues, thereby forced European witnesses to confront nothingness as a material reality.”
